I love my new blog counter

I just installed a blog counter!! Don't you wonder how many people visit your blog? I visit so many blogs that are so fun and inspiring but the author never knows I'm there. It's the perfect "fly on the wall" experience!! I don't mind lurkers on my blog - in fact I think it's great - lots of friends you don't even know yet! I recently recognized a person in the store whose blog I read...I felt like I know her so well but she has not idea who I am...or does she? Maybe she recognized me too! It's all so fun and I feel so "in" with the "in crowd" even though I'm on the older side of bloggers.

I read lots of blogs on google reader - I don't think the counter works with that so if you're reading this on google reader if you don't mind clicking on my blog just to make the number go up I'd appreciate it. I'm going to have to stop myself from logging on to my blog to see what the number is because I think that will increase the count artificially....

It's addicting! I have one on mine as well and I want to know who is behind the ip addresses! When they leave a comment I am able to match up the time they left the comment and the time they checked my blog. My husband makes fun of me!

I love it too. It is just fun to see and if you go to my blog you will see a thing called...I think it is map loco on the bottom of my first page that puts little dots from the different places in the world where your visitors are from. It is ongoing and so it changes everyday and is fun. By double clicking on it once you have installed it you can see the towns people are from. I like it because I can always tell when Michelle or Laura have checked in. If you double click on mine it will guide you through installing it. You can also sign up for Google Analytics which does something similar.

Lanette I really do love you. I think you are so so so FABULOUS!!! I love being around you & just having some of your fabulousness sometimes maybe just maybe rub off on me!!! Of course none of this is in a stalkerish way!!! :):) I love the the google reader, thank you thank you for helping me get it to work. I find though that I don't go to people's individual blogs to leave comments anymore. How sad is that, the computer makes it even more easy to be even more lazy.... crazy huh! Thanks for all your sharing. I will try & make it a point to click on your blog from the google reader so you know I have been blog stalking you!!! :) Love Mare :):)
